“Fabulous! fabulous fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We just got back from 3 weeks in Greece and loved Honeymoon Petra! The location is perfect (imerovigli is about a 10 minute walk from fira so you are out of the tourist jam. Arguably the best view of the sunset on santorini. The views were incredible! Rooms very well appointed. The hotel spreads out down a hill. Hint ask for a room on the lower cliffs (on the ocean side of the walkway). We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and it was a duplex with two areas to sunbathe and a huge jacuzzi tub! We were nervous about taking our kids to an amazing honeymoon spot but our kids were pretty chill and the staff was super nice to them. The owner of the hotel yannis is around a very interesting guy he also owns 4 boats which you can rent at favorable prices. We went out with yannis on his 41 foot power boat and this is HIGHLY recommended. Santorini by water is incredible and he will take you to some neat places. The hotel also does 4 nights on a boat and rest in the hotel which you will want to consider. We spent 4 days out in the water in our 3 weeks in Greece and they were some of the best times we had.

The staff was very competent and very nice. Breakfasts were good. We were able to walk to many restaurants but often had lunch at the hotel (very good) by the gorgeous pool. The best we had was la maison.

Hint.. Oia is a beautiful town that what seems like all tourists on santorini have discovered. Everyone lands there for the sunset. Beautiful town with simply too many tourists. Your best bet is to head their early. Try dinner in the Oia harbor at dimitris or sunset (side by side) walk down a lot of steps take a donkey back up or even better have the restaurant call a taxi to take you back to the hotel.

Fantastic place to stay in santorini!

Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your stay at Honeymoon Petra Villas. We are delighted to read that you found the location of our Hotel perfect. Indeed we are not at all close to the crowds found in the center and at the same time it takes only 20 minutes to walk there. Thank also for noting that we have the best sunset view of Santorini, the 270 degrees of unobstructed view from Akrotiri, Fira, the Old Port with the cruise ships, the Volcano with its Hot springs, Firostefani, Imerovigli all the way to Oia is in fact what makes our location one of the best on the island. We appreciate that you shared your experience sailing with one of our yachts. Our guests have the opportunity to book a sailing trip with one of our 4 yachts and adjust it to their schedule and preferences. It makes us very happy to hear that the service provided from our staff pleased you since that is our main purpose and we strive constantly to achieve it. We are looking forward to your next visit for a second relaxing stay.

The website and pictures do not do it justice. I searched the Internet for weeks to find the perfect spot in Santorini and this was it. The location was perfect, far enough away from the crowds yet walking distance to many fine restaurants. The hotel was excellent. The honeymoon suite for 4 which had been renovated in 2012 was luxurious. Beautifully furnished, spotless, well air conditioned and spacious. I was traveling with my 3 teenage daughters and we had a wonderful time. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We felt like part of the family by the end of our stay. The pool was large with a jacuzzi and waterfall. The steam room was great.
I would go back for sure.

i really don't know where to start with this review ... the staff were all super sweet and so helpful that its almost unheard of ... Evi, Olga, Mario (the poor sweetheart who carried our heavy luggage up and down that steep hill when we were checking in)

Yannis, hotel owner was one of the reasons why our stay was so great, hes very friendly and sits and has a nice chat with you for hours to no end ... he has a passion for his hotel and it shows in the treatment of his staff to the guests and in the way everyone in this hotels deals with you as if you are part of a big happy family ..

the hotel itself is very nice... i would have ever preferred to stay in the new petra wing coz they are just gorgeous and newly renovated however our room had one amazing thing about it, the outstanding caldera view and its own huge private terrace which caters to 3 other rooms but it felt like part of our room.

Also hotel location is perfect, 5-10 minutes drive from there to Fira which is the downtown area where all the hype is .. im really glad i didn't stay down in Fira ... immerovigli is the perfect place to stay with the semi quietness and if we want crazy we drive down to it

You will feel it's one of the best breakfast places during your past vacation. And you can see its cliff center miles away from Oia or Fira. Then you will be impressed by its amazing view and place repeatedly. Very friendly staff. I adopted one lcoal friend's suggestion and no doubt it's a wise decision.

Room Tip: Choose your room close to swimming pool.

We travelled throughout Greece for 5 weeks and Honey Moon Petra Villas was by far the most amazing accommodation. The staff really do make you feel like family. We arrived at night and were welcomed by the reception staff then taken to the pool bar for a complimentary drink. Here is where we met the owner who said to us "make it like your home".
The breakfasts are amazing, the views breathtaking, the staff so friendly and the location is just perfect. It's far enough away from town to avoid the noise and most of the cruise ship tourists yet close enough to walk to town for shopping or restaurants.
We also chartered the owners sailing boat "Santa Maria" for a day. The owner took us out himself with one other wonderful crew mate. The day was unforgettable. Beautifully prepared lunch and local wine with history talks by a man who has such passion for Santorini.
We will definitely he going back and staying at Honey Moon Petra Villas.

This hotel has the most amazing view in Santorini, including the sunset. The pool and pool bar are great and have good food and great cocktails.

The staff is so friendly and helpful. We had the most amazing time there. It will be hard to go to another place next time we are back in Santorini.

Room Tip: Petra villas have the best views.

We visited this boutique style hotel for a relaxing weekend away from home-kids-jobs et.c. Our room was very quite, overlooking Imerovigli and the caldera. I think the location of the hotel is one of the best on the island, the stuff is very attentive and friendly but also discrete. Also, my request for a b-day cake was so easily and happily met by the reception girls! Everything in this hotel is made with love and much care by the owner Mr. Yiannis, and that you can feel in this hotel's vibe. The public areas (pool, sun beds, bales, bar) where the icing on the cake, with amazing views and zen feeling. The breakfast hall reminded me of a spa retreat where all the chairs are facing the view...not each other!!! Last but not least, we got an A class professional massage...don't miss out on this! I would definitely go back again on a couple getaway with my husband...
